Rigging Points for The Ballroom at the Dorchester Hotel
Posted 06 February 2012 - 07:30 PM
Getting an old one off somebody maybe a pointless act. Points that fail their inspections may be removed and not replaced, it would be pretty annoying if you planned to hang a load of truss then discovered 3 of the 4 points had been removed since the drawing was made.
Structural engineers sometimes also change the rating of a point if there is an issue with the building, so likewise you could have a plot telling you the room is full of 1 ton points that are now 250kg.
I don't know about the Dorchester but these are all scenarios which could easily happen on an annual basis, so it's very much worth ringing them to get the latest issue of it.
